Around 80 members of the Scottish Defence League (SDL) and North East Infidels (NEI) converged on Berwick at the weekend for an anti-immigration protest.

There were just as many joining a counter-demonstration organised by Berwick United Against Fascism, and as the SDL and NEI marched down Marygate, the two groups came face to face, kept apart by the police.

Superintendent Peter Storey praised the behaviour of Berwick residents, saying: “Their conduct and patience was exemplary, helping a potentially difficult event pass safely.”
